While picking up the Robert Altman Award for the movie "Margin Call," actor-producer Zachary Quinto didn't stick with the usual plaudits for the acting heavyweights in the film, including Jeremy Irons and Kevin Spacey. "As an actor, showing up to work every day was such an incredible gift. As a producer, every day I showed up to work was a complete …nightmare. Because it turns out that the schedules of two Academy Award winners and two Academy Award nominees and amazing actors are really complicated.
